Half Azerbaijani, half Israeli, but born and bred in the wet and windy wilds of Devon - don't worry, I'm as confused as you are. A queer film, TV and commercials writer/director with a big love for weirdos and unusual ways of looking at the world. I make high-energy, strange, punk, emotional, dark, grounded genre stuff with a twisted sense of humour.
